Us Online extends the acclaimed Roar Educate e-safety product with targeted offerings for primary schools and secondary schools … drawn from three new modules, Me Online for KS1, Our Online World for KS2-3, and Meme for KS4.
The resources address digital and web literacy, with all new activities about making and posting content, cyber-bullying, copyright, networking and gaming, privacy and identity fraud, security and passwords, viruses and malware, file-sharing, secure transacting, and using the web for research. Modules include user e-safety surveys for each key stage, plus a fully resourced Teacher Centre, with video demos and lesson plans for every activity.It reproduces elements of the online world, giving children and young people authentic experience of situations online. Activities exploit the gamut of online techniques – animation, audio, video, gaming and high levels of interactivity – and the media rich product immerses children in the culture of their online world.
The pedagogy is constructivist: children learn by ‘doing’… they make decisions and experiment with choices and consequences. Progress is guided by challenges, prompts and feedback along the way.
